Pippi goes to Multnomah Falls

It’s been really cold here lately, with temperatures down in the teens. That’s pretty chilly for our mild climate. But Jack Frost is an artful decorator. check out my windshield.


Laurie and I took a quick trip out to Multnomah Falls on Friday morning. It’s one of my favorite places; I’ve posted about it in other seasons, too. Laurie was wearing her Pippi hat.

The falls were stunningly gorgeous.

Some people made the short trek up to the bridge, but I was short on time and not dressed for more than a quick photo op.

We had a quick stop at Rooster Rock on the way back, and saw the ice in the Columbia. Do you see Beacon Rock way up the river?

I’m knitting away at a new design project. I took it with me in the car, but I can’t show it to you yet, so here’s another picture of someone else’s knitting. One of my students from my Christmas stocking class sent me a picture of her nearly finished project. Congratulations, Courtney; it looks great!

  1. I think you are missing a picture, from rooster rock? I don’t know if I have anything on the needles. I tried to fix the square but I think I have to start over completely. Trying to be zen about it all.

  2. Oops! I just added the picture. Now you can see Beacon Rock. Impossible before!

  16. The photo of the snowflakes on your windshield was beautiful. I never new that they really looked like that. My WIP’s is a cowl (I took your advice and looked in the stitch dictionary, although I started simple with a cowl). Also a simple watch cap that I hope to finish tonight

  17. Love the photos of the trip, and I loved seeing the darling hat! I really need to get out my Pippi hat pattern and knit one for myself. I think about it all the time and have just been fiddling around knitting other things for lack of having the right yarns that I want to use for it. I’ve got to get off my duff and figure out what to use and then knit it!

  18. Those falls photos look amazing!

  19. I’m knitting another hat, naturally! I used the pattern you taught us for the cute hats I made for my nieces… actually made a gage swatch for once 🙂 Happy Holidays!
